Renaming your pokemon

I just traded Pokemon over the GTS and I didn't like the name that was given to them and I was hoping someone could tell me is there a place where I can rename my Pokemon at in the game?

You an change a pokemon's name at the name rater in Goldenrod City. However, you cannot change a traded pokemon's nickname.

You can't change a Pokemon's name if you traded it or got it from an event.
If you didn't trade it or get it from an event, you could change it's name which by the name rater in the tent in Goldenrod City or Lavender Town.

You can't change the name of a traded Pokemon, only a Pokemon that you have caught

A Pokemon that does not have your Trainer ID cannot be renamed. However, the two name raters are in Goldenrod City, and Lavender Town (Not sure about Lavender, though)

the fact that you cant change a traded pokemon's name is unbelievably stupid....

Actually, its not stupid, Because the traded pokemon doesn't have his ID

Actually, YOU'RE stupid, because he was referring to the fact that not being able to name traded PKMN is stupid, not the fact that HE can't. God, why can't more sensible people exist on the internet? Just break all of your video games. You don't deserve the pleasure of gaming.
